▪ Porto is chiefly famous for the export of the wine named for it, a popular fortified wine usually served after meals. The trade-in port was begun in 1678 and was firmly established under the terms of the Methuen Treaty (1703) between England and Portugal. An act of 1906 defined port as a wine produced in the Douro district and exported from Porto with an alcoholic strength of more than 16.5 percent. A sizable proportion of the population is engaged in manufacturing, and fisheries and tourism are also important. Just northwest of Porto, on the Atlantic coast in Matosinhos, is the deepwater artificial Port of Leixões.
